I do know one thing tho - your way too good of a lifter to let this happen again.
I was shocked too Jim , really threw me for a loop. Today went better , just some triples but they felt better.
Will probably adjust my numbers now ( downwards – boohiss! )
Appreciate your advice here

You just never know why things happen the way they do.

If it was me, I'd hit some light weights and really crush them. Get some mojo back.

I'm pulling for you buddy!
Thanks Mike, good to know it not just me then , will most likely adjust my squat numbers downwards and see how things move on the day.
Hit some light triples today to get some confidence back….

In fairness no , chatted with Al a bit and realised I was a bit too slow down and definitely too slow into the hole , something to work on after the meet for sure
